All-American Cole Slaw

All-American Cole Slaw

A tasty and original coleslaw recipe that's easy to follow and understand. Best served with steak or grilled chicken!












Low Cholesterol, Trans-fat Free, High Fiber


2 pounds cabbage
green, quartered, cored and shredded fine
3 tablespoons vinegar
cider or malt
cups mayonnaise
1 each onions
small, grated (optnl)
2 each carrots
medium, grated
4 teaspoons salt


In a large mixing bowl, toss the cabbage with the vinegar and salt. Grate the carrots and optional onion directly into the bowl. Add the mayonnaise and toss well.

The slaw can be served immediately, but it is much better -- more melded and tender -- if allowed to stand and tossed occasionally for 30 minutes to 1 hour. For a very limp slaw, refrigerate several hours or overnight.

The law on cole slaw is cabbage and vinegar. All the rest is interpretation. Adjust the recipe to taste: Add more mayonnaise, substitute sour cream or yogurt for some (but not all) of the mayonnaise, or add a supplement of one or the other. Add diced green and/or red pepper if you have one, celery or caraway seeds if you like that kind of thing, or shredded celery for an extra fresh taste.

Sean made this All-American Cole Slaw yesterday, and I liked it. We used low-fat sour cream instead of mayonaise, and it turned out creamy and tasty. Definitely a great side dish that goes well with BBQ!

Everything taste is personal, a lot comes from our heritage:

A Southerner and not too much on some of the ingredients mentioned in this recipe, egs. carrots, celery, our family recipe call for
Finely grated cabbage, finely keyword
Scallions chopped to taste size
Tomatoes, cut to size-taste, smaller for
Mayonnaise, only Hellman's will do for
Garlic salt to taste, only Lowry's for
us; it becomes stronger with age,as does the amount of mayo, as the
water is brought out by the salt.
A moderate dash of vinegar - personal taste, I love Teragon
That's it; and it's great - once perfected to taste, it's won over everybody's who's ever had it! Thanks to my Mother, Kathryn, for this one, as with all our beloved Southern cooking ways - simple and ever so delicious!

People who've had our gravies made after frying meats, especially chicken, call it a food group.
